I can’t sleep,

Darn this insomnia,

My anxiety reappears when I can’t sleep,

It feels so lonely with insomnia,

I want to scream, “I want to sleep.”


I want to cry because I’m exhausted,

I wish there was someone to talk to,

Panic wants to reappear when I’m exhausted,

I have only me to talk to,

I should be able to sleep because I’m exhausted.


My brain feels like it’s half way shutting down,

Yet the other half keeps replaying thoughts that keep me awake,

I feel I make myself sick when my brain is half way shut down,

I dislike feeling alone when I’m awake,

I guess all I can do is comfort myself when my brain is half way shut down.
